Brown Bag Program For Low Income Seniors

Marin Community Food Bank is currently accepting applications from low-income seniors for our Brown Bag Program. The program has been operated by the Food Bank in cooperation with the California Department of Aging, Area Agencies on Aging, private donations, and fundraising efforts since April 1981 to help low-income senior citizens supplement their diets with high quality, nutritious items.
A Brown Bag generally consists of fresh fruit, bread, vegetables, packaged items and canned goods. Home gardeners, churches, schools, civic groups, farmers, packers, markets and other local merchants donate the food. Donating food to Brown Bag helps seniors and prevents food waste.

Anyone 60 years of age or older with an income of less than $1,036.00 for a single person or $1,363.75 for a couple is eligible to receive this twice-a-month distribution. Brown Bag is distributed at 19 sites in Marin County.

For more information about the BROWN BAG program, please call and ask to speak with Linda, Program Administrator, at (415) 883-1302.
